Abstract
    A new abyssal liljeborgiid amphipod from the equatorial eastern Atlantic Ocean (00°40.49'N, 005°29.71'W, 5142 m), Liljeborgia (Lilljeborgiella) famelicosa is described. The new species is very similar to L. mozambica Ledoyer, 1986 from the southwestern Indian Ocean. A key and checklist is also provided to species of Liljeborgia recorded from below 1000 m. The capacity of large range dispersal in Liljeborgia lineages is briefly discussed.
